Expert Overview

I was introduced to functional programming (FP) through university coursework in the 80s that involved LISP.

I've been sold on FP ever since, and wish to contribute to the success of Haskell (and other FP languages) in the real world; so that FP languages can be more viable for both home and professional use.

For pragmatic reasons, I have largely used conventional languages professionally, and used FP mostly for home use.

My home project involving conversion of an F# project to Haskell also caused an unexpected internal conversion: I now love Haskell so much I want to fully transition to Haskell for all programming (both at home and professionally).

In my talk, I wish to explore the advantages of Haskell, while also being honest about its challenges.
